Candied Pecans

When I was about nineteen, I used to work at the mall. There was one kiosk that sold candied pecans and the sweet smell would lure you right to them! I took a chance on this wonderful sweet smell, never having tried them before, and quickly fell in love with this sugar coated nut. Around this time of year when all the holiday goodies are being made, I was curious about how to make them and combined two recipes I found. I took pictures as I went along with this experiment and thought if it turned out well I would share! And guess what? They were just as wonderful as I’d hoped! Not to mention slightly addicting…Don’t say I didn’t warn ya!
